Eduardo Martín del Pozo
Luis Adelantado Valencia is pleased to present the work by the artist Eduardo Martín del Pozo (Madrid, 1974). The exhibition brings together a collection of canvases from his extensive pictorial investigation work, where the artist goes beyond the final image itself and delves further into the process and the act of painting.
Through classical genres such as dead nature, landscapes or flower paintings, Del Pozo draws lines of pictorial relationships with other artistic disciplines and creates a certain genealogy.
“Endless dichotomies and issues of opposites, fight and pleasure and the things lost along the way and what remains of it: accidents, drips, prints, edges, gaps, remains... The magic of matter and the gesture pictured on the surface; all that ‘other’ that follows while I strive to paint, and then, I paint worse.
From the before, here, there, now the elements are born which are repeated, re-exposed, varied, transformed, developed, over and over again, to be understood and suddenly converted in language; in that pictorial instant where everything pulls together and converges. Gesture, he who does, and eye, he who decides, finally become two fundamental tools. And it is then that painting starts to be, above all, an exciting game that is both primitive and sophisticated between the body, thought and matter.”
